"This was another solid quarter for the firm and represents marked progress year-over-year," said James K. Hunt, chief executive officer of THL Credit. "We are pleased with the five new investments we made this quarter as well as the more limited amount of prepayment activity during the quarter compared to recent quarters. Apart from regularly scheduled amortization and planned sell down of our holdings in Gold, Inc., we continued with our strategy of prudent and patient growth in the portfolio, which when coupled with increased leverage, we believe will drive earnings growth going forward. Our pipeline, particularly unsponsored transactions, remains active and we have $150 million of borrowing capacity as of March 31, 2013 under our newly upsized and extended credit facility closed in March to fund near term investment opportunities."
